VF Corp-owned Timberland has launched footwear made exclusively with
renewable and recycled materials.

The upper of the ‘Truecloud’, which comes in a boot version and a Chukka
version, comprises 50 percent responsibly sourced wool and 50 percent nylon
blend.

The linings are made of 70 percent eucalyptus tree fibers, a renewable
raw material that comes from sustainably managed forests, and 30 percent
recycled cotton blend, which uses excess cotton from manufacturing that
would otherwise have gone to waste. The recycled cotton requires 95 percent
less water to make than traditional cotton fabric, according to the
brand.

The footwear also features 100 percent recycled PET laces.

The shoes are available globally on the brand’s website and cost 145
pounds for the knit boots and 120 pounds for the knit Chukka.
